What on Earth is wrong with the reasonable promotion of a website that is relevent to the subject or story ? If it is blatant spam, that's different, but if there is some info on an important subject where is the harm in posting that. Today people are mentioning Google and Facebook in many posts … why don't you remove those posts, they are promoting those sites ?
I really have to rate the editor ability of Palo Alto Online at about a C-. PAO needs to get serious about what they are doing here. This is like the new gossip tree where people log in to share ideas and part of that is pointing out thing they think might be helpful or relevant. I'm not that interested in this subject, but there is not much here but someone whose friend or loved one has been through the war or trauma might like to have the resource.
TIn mhy opinion there is no need for PAO to be so draconian in their censorship.
